In this week's Above Asking, we take a look at the final sales prices for two homes in northwest DC that proved there is still a lot of competition out there despite rising interest rates.

An L-shaped deck off the kitchen sits above a flagstone patio and steps run along the backyard to a one-car garage and parking pad.

$350,000 Over Asking in Chevy Chase
The competition was likely high for this five-bedroom home in Chevy Chase, which ultimately sold for $350,000 above the original asking price. A white picket fence and a covered front porch lead in to a living room with a gas fireplace between windows above built-in shelving units. The kitchen has a marble-topped breakfast bar island with matching countertops and matching backsplash between the stainless steel hood and the stove. The adjacent family room also has a gas fireplace, and in between, a door leads out to the deck.
